Clabo appeared in all 16 games for Houston a year ago but did not start any of them. This was a departure from what he was used to as a longtime starter in the NFL.
Clabo entered the NFL as an undrafted free agent out of Wake Forest in 2004. After bouncing around with the Broncos, Giants and Chargers, Clabo latched on with the Falcons in 2005. In 2006, Clabo earned a starting role with Atlanta, the team he stayed with through the 2012 season.
He ended up in Houston a year ago after starting 15 games for the Dolphins in 2013.
In total, Clabo has started 116 of the 132 games he's appeared in throughout his career.
Bill O'Brien has declared that ballyhooed
"I've been impressed with the way JD's been working," O'Brien said. "He's been out there. He's in early. He's rehabbing. But he's also been able to take part in some of the things that we do in the weight room. ... He's on the right track."'
Clowney suffered through an injury-plagued season, which also included a concussion and meniscus tear. His rookie season constituted just four games played.
"I'm ready to go," Mallet replied. "I'm still getting better every day. I don't feel any restrictions. It's about me. It's about managing and being smart with my body. Just doing the right thing as we progress. I need to play in August, September, and those months. Not April right now, you know?"
Mallet is expected to split first team reps with newcomer Brian Hoyer in OTAs at quarterback.
"It's not new -- for me, it's kind of just getting back on the bike," Hoyer said Monday. "You learn to ride a bike and whether you don't ride it for a year or two, you can pick it up pretty quickly. There's some adjustments, especially with (George) Godsey being the offensive coordinator. It's been a great three weeks so far of getting re-acclimated and learning the nuances that he's kind of put his own spin on."
Hoyer threw for 3,326 yards with 12 touchdowns and 13 interceptions in 2014 with the Browns.
"For me, I'm kind of re-acclimating myself, so we're all kind of learning together," Hoyer said. "We've put a lot of extra work in after our workouts, whether it's going in the film room and looking at formations or going over concepts. I think that's really helped me and it's helped those guys, too. Especially in this offense, you're asked to do so much, so if you can do without thinking, it speeds up the process that much more."
Mallett threw for 400 yards with two touchdowns and two interceptions in three games for Houston before suffering a season-ending pectoral injury.
Swearinger took to Instagram on Monday after he apparently received the news of his termination, saying "It's time for a new chapter and the defining moment of my career."
Texans coach Bill O'Brien originally disputed the report. Swearinger totaled 74 tackles with two interceptions in 16 games in 2014.
